This looks great - thank you!  I find it much easier to read.

I'd prefer to use the short labels for the compact representation, so that
they line up, and it basically becomes a table.

Meaning, in apropos-print-doc I'd change:

       (if apropos-compact-layout
           (button-type-get type 'apropos-label)

       (if apropos-compact-layout
           (button-type-get type 'apropos-short-label)
